|DESCRIPTION|| Rolling back – Jab step to the side of the defender (towards the baseline), step across, and roll around them. Ensure your arms and elbows are up ready to catch the rebound.
Gaining position – Anticipate that the ball won’t go in the net. Move around to where you think the ball will land, and be there before your defender.
Chasing the ball down – Chase the ball down after every shot. Practice shooting the ball and chasing it down with, and without a defender. Practice anticipating where the ball will land.
